The month of June went by so fast for us. We continued to have large numbers on volunteer nights at the shop. We averaged over 12 people each Tuesday and Thursday night during June. Work nights have been a lot of fun, especially with all the new faces. We have worked on getting bikes ready for delivery and on parting out bikes so we can make room for more bikes people are donating to us. We have been receiving close to 5 bikes a week being donated to us, which is awesome!
The soup kitchen has continued to be a special night. We fed over 50 meals to families in need during June. We are trying to find ways to get the word out more about the meals each week so that we can find more people we can help. If you know anyone who has some trouble paying all the bills each month, bring them on a Wednesday night for dinner. If you know someone who is not able to get out due to lack of transportation or lack of means, please refer them to us and we will find away to get them fed.
